Adaptec XHub2 


Quick Start Guide 





Before You Begin 

To use your Adaptec XHub2®, you need: 

■ A PC-compatible notebook or desktop computer with: 

■ A 266-MHz or faster processor 

■ Windows® XP or Windows 2000 

■ An available USB port 

■ One high-quality USB cable for each USB device you 
wish to connect to your XHub2. (High quality USB 
cables are available for purchase on the Adaptec Web 
site, at www.adaptec.com/buy-cables.) 

About USB 2.0 Performance 

For your XHub2 and USB 2.0 devices to operate at USB 2.0 
speeds, the XHub2 must be connected to a USB 2.0 port, 
and USB 2.0 drivers with hub support must be installed on 
your computer. 

If your computer does not have a built-in USB 2.0 port, 
Adaptec recommends connecting your XHub2 to an 
Adaptec USB 2.0 adapter for the highest-quality USB 2.0 
connection. 

Z 7 Note: USB 1.1 devices won't operate at USB 2.0 speeds, 
even if they're connected to a USB 2.0 hub or adapter.

Unplugging Your XHub2 

Your XHub2 is hot-pluggable, which means it can be 
connected and disconnected while your computer is on. 
(Your USB devices may not be hot-pluggable, however; see 
Unplugging Your Devices on page 3 for more information.)

Unplugging Your Devices

ways. Some devices (like CD-ROM drives) must be 
stopped before they are unplugged. Refer to your devices' 
documentation for disconnection recommendations.
